Lay Me Down (2000) – Badfinger

I became familiar with this band from Max’s articles at Powerpop. I really like listening to this song and it should have been a big hit. It’s just a great pop-rock tune.
I am in wonderment at the part of the song between 0:45 – 1:15 and they repeat it at 2:04.
To me the vocals are strangely similar to Paul McCartney.
Max wrote a stellar article on this one, so I’ll turn it over to him:

“The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realize, the less I know.”- Michel Legrand

    Thanks for the mention Matt! I always liked this song…it’s one that has been seriously overlooked. They should have been much more famous than they were.

    We finally got our electricity back on last night after 3 days and night of not having it. I almost wept I was so excited.

    • I sent it out yesterday and the feedback was very positive! I especially love those parts I mentioned.
      What a relief after 3 days without electricity. What happened there?

      • Badfinger (Max) says:

        Gust of winds around 70 mph…. our county we live in had over 200 trees fall over powerlines… I don’t know why the hell they don’t run them underground.

      • Do you lose power a lot for heavy gusts?

      • Badfinger (Max) says:

        Yes….all of those trees fell over power lines. I don’t know why they don’t run power lines underground here.

      • I see. It must be one heck of an inconvenience.

      • Badfinger (Max) says:

        I never knew how I took electricity for granted until I lost it.

      • Three days straight is a long time. I had a similar experience when we had fires all around us south of Sydney.

      • Badfinger (Max) says:

        If I had a dollar everytime I went by a light switch and switched it on… Bruce told me this morning that light switches in New Zealand is down for on…I thought he was messing with me but no…it’s true and I’m sure for Australia also.

      • I could only imagine the frustration checking each time you past a light switch hehe. In Australia I don’t remember losing electricity much except because of fires. The electricity here where I live is really good. I think we have lost a couple of times for very short periods. Anyway, I’m glad all is back to normal.
